Half of the world’s population experiences periods for most of their lives. However, there has been no significant innovation in this area for more than 50 years.
With OrganiCup you can save money and save the planet’s resources at the same time. Imagine the mountains of waste pads and tampons create every month. The average woman uses 11,000 pads or tampons in her lifetime. But “OrganiCup” creates only 30 grams of waste instead of 30 kilograms! Disposable periodproducts contain petroleum-based chemicals and fragrances that are absorbed into our bodies and can cause endocrine disruption. Pads and tampons also contain poisonous substances used in plant protection: cotton is sprayed with glyphosate, a substance that causes cancer, during growth.
Think how many young girls miss school just because they are ashamed of their periods. We have the power to change how menstruation affects our lives, our bodies and the environment around us.
